Talavera Pottery

In Talavera de la Reina, Spin, the fine art of glazing fire baked clay was started. The potters who perfected this art introduced it the Mexican potters sometime around the 15th to 16th centuries. The old style techniques that were developed all of those years ago are still used today and the results are brightly decorative colors that are used to make the most amazing ceramics possible that are now known as Talavera pottery.

The process of creating Talavera pottery is not exactly a quick one with the entire process taking around 12 to 15 days to complete. The clay is first mixed and then either hand molded or placed into a plaster mold to dry. When the clay has dried it is sanded lightly and given a polish to smooth out any irregularities before it is put into a kiln and baked at temperatures approaching 2000 degrees F. The pieces are then coated in enamel, hand painted and then baked again so that the colors are fused to the clay. This results in a gloss finish that is extremely durable with colors that will maintain their brightness for a long time.

The types of Talavera pottery pieces that are commonly found include: Talavera tiles, Talavera plates, Talavera serving dishes and Talavera platters. But just as with other types of ceramics, Talavera pottery is used for just about any small figurine or household product.

Salt and pepper shakers, butter dishes, sugar bowls, vases and ash trays are all common products that make ideal examples for how Talavera pottery can be used. Really, the list is pretty much endless when it comes to the possibilities with Talavera.

Although there are many designs that are created for indoor use, placing Talavera pots around the garden is a great way to add some sparkle to the garden as well. Talavera garden pots allow the creative or colourful energy really have its head.

Placing Talavera pots in the sunshine will only highlight the vivid colors that are used in their manufacture and will introduce splashes of color into the garden itself. When placed among flowering plants the result is going to be close to spectacular. It should be possible to browse through a strong range of Talavera garden pots at most garden centres.

Decorative items, dinnerware, garden pots, wall tiles and even ceramic sinks are all available made from Talavera pottery. It is a great way to add decorative accents to a room or to create a display that will hold visitors in awe. Talavera murals on the wall or coordinated decorative designs will add life to any room.
